. our march report this year includes a total of 19 recommendations, including ford related to special needs plans under medicare advantage. across those 19 recommendations, there were a total of 302 yes votes from medpac commissions, five no votes and three abstentions. so there's a substantial consensus in the commission in favor of the recommendations in our report. if i could highlight just one thing in my opening statement it would be recommendation to repeal the sgr system, sustainable growth rate system, medicare physician payment program. as you well know, cbo recently we estimated the cost of repeal, and it is dramatically lower than it has been in recent years. from our perspective sgr repeal is now on sale, and the sale price may not last so we urge you to take advantage of this opportunity. we also urge you to include in the repeal legislation to other things. one is provisions that we rebound space between cognitive and -- with particular emphasis on primary care. second provision designed to encourage movement towards new payment systems. as we see it, payment ref

going to affect shopkeepers and merchants in their area. when i was governor, early in my term, ford decided to close a plant with a couple of thousand workers in norfolk and the ripple of that throughout the economy, a couple of thousand workers, was very significant. to take 90,000 civilian d.o.d. employees in a state like virginia, heavily concentrated in northern virginia and hampton rhodes, and to furlough them and to reduce their salaries, this is going to be felt throughout this economy. and this is just one of the many effects of furlough -- many effects of sequester, these civilian furloughs. and --, and senator, sometimes when people hear of furlough of civilian d.o.d. please, they might think, that's somebody sitting in a office. you need to think about who these people are. i visited fort belvoir community hospital that treats wonted warriors, the people who have sacrificed so much for this nation, and when i was dialoguing with a wounded warrior and his wife at the hospital and they raised sequester, i thought they were raising sequester about something about their veter

were home and she found them and she got the votes. that's microtargeting. harold ford the former head of the democratic leadership council has said look of course obama had a more powerful message. but he also was able to find voters in states like ohio and florida and colorado that had never been found before and we have to emulate that to prevent any chance of success. lastly, there is one thing we do have to worry about. we are seeing a deterrent to change the rules of the game. it's not just michael targeting. it's an attempt to obliterate the system that we have in this country and to introduce a greater element of fraud. right now all of the liberal groups -- all of the liberal groups are trying to push for something called mandatory voter registration. this would be a disaster. of course we have an antiquated registration system to the lobby of 2 million dead people. i don't support representation without restoration. [laughter] we have 2.75 million people in one state. we have one out of a voter registrations are inaccurate. the way to fix that isn't to throw away the who

to find a ford minivan's worth of israelis that who are anti-american. they want to like an american president. whatever their differences have been with obama and they have been recorded in polls, for the most part every stop along the visit is designed, is very well choreographed to touch deeper chords in israeli society whether a visit to the shrine of book, talking about historical attachment of land or the stop at hertzel's tomb or talking to israeli kids about the future of the 21st century these are things obama will do very well at and i think this trip is already, i would be surprised if it isn't a success. there will be hiccups. why didn't he talk to the knesset. why weren't the students from ariel invited along with other college students? there will be some hiccups but i think the public part will be successful to the extent i can. the way i see it obama doing the outreach, some say oh, he wants just to check a box. i think he sees the way towards magging the relationship with the israeli government runs through the israeli public. it doesn't mean that, it was completely
